Green rooftops have enormous benefits. They effectively utilize the natural functions of plants to filter water and treat air in urban landscapes. Also, insulation material used in green roof structures can help reduce the overall interior energy consumption of a building. Vertical green spaces, just like urban ones, can lower air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect (warm urban areas due to human activity) through the process of evaporation. Moreover, absorbing rain water and providing an aesthetically pleasing aerial landscape. Best of all, they can create a habitat for wildlife as well; providing the opportunity to practice bee-keeping for honey production.
